Install Estonian e-ID Software on Qubes OS in a Fedora 29 VM

10 May, 2019 — Platschi

After receiving my Estonian e-ID, I have been asked to visit their welcome page to set up my new digital identity card. To my surprise, some Windows software is shown to be required in order for the card reader to function. No word on available Linux packages, no easily discoverable information in the FAQ to lead me to the right place. Come on Estonia, you can do better! The world does not run on Windows solely, it's not 1998 anymore.
